Live Updates Of 2016 Olympic Trials Standards Announcement

USA Swimming will be releasing the 2016 Olympic Trials time standards at the United States Aquatic Sport Convention in Jacksonville, Florida.

The qualifying period opened officially on July 30th, 2014, and so times from them until the Olympic Trials deadline (just before the meet starts in 2016) will count. That includes times from the 2014 Nationals and the 2014 Junior Nationals.

What is the equal period?


Qual period starts 7/30/2014
Thought the presentation of standards livestream was very informative and enjoyable! Nice job USA Swimming!


You mean qualifying period? July 30, 2014. A better comparison during the live broadcast would have been this past summer’s nat cuts.

I had to rush over to USA swimming database to check my daughters time against the qualifying period. She got her 400 IM time on July 30th at Jun Nats, 1st day of the qual. period. Whew! Being a swim parent is soooo stressful! HAH

If you mean “qualifying period”, it started (I think) on October 1, 2013.
